Susan's Garden Anthurium

Today I created a Stair-step card for you.  One of Susan Tierney-Cockburn's favorite flowers is the Anthurium, which is an Hawaiian flower.  There are only two pieces necessary to create this pretty flower, plus the leaves.  Susan has a video showing you how to assemble the Susan's Garden Anthurium at this LINK.

I die cut this flower using red card stock; it was shaped with the tools in the Susan's Garden Flower Tool Kit.  The stamen was very easy to form.  Once the stamen was rolled, it was covered with Ultimate Glue and rolled in the yellow Susan's Garden Pollen.  To create the shiny look that an Anthurium has, Viva Glass Effects was used.  Susan will show you all these steps in her video.

I love the background on this card  because a very good friend, from the Netherlands, sent me the beautiful Marianne Design doily die (CR1261). This doily created a beautiful background on this Stair Step Card for the Anthurium.   

 Here is a front view of the card.  For final touches, I added some ladybugs created with Viva Decor Red and Black Pearl Pens, and a polka dot bow.
